Vigilant bank staff prevent Arnold pensioner being conned out of cash by man with ‘sob story’

Police are warning residents to be on their guard after an Arnold pensioner was nearly conned out of cash by a man in a van with a ‘sob story’.

The incident occurred yesterday (9) in the Arnold area where a local elderly resident was approached in his garden by an unknown male. This male gave the resident a sob story who due to feeling sorry for him agreed to give him some money, which resulted in the resident being driven to his bank for the money to be withdrawn.

The unknown male is believed to be using a black Fiat 500L which has a white roof and wing mirrors.

A spokesperson for Nottinghamshire Police said: “Luckily vigilant bank staff asked why the pensioner was withdrawing that amount of money and upon hearing the reason became suspicious and contacted the Police. Upon police arrival the unknown male was no-where to be found.

“We are highly suspicious of this unknown male and so we ask you to be vigilant and pass this on to family and friends. Please report anything suspicious to 101 or 999 if an emergency”.
